So what do we know about Blade Runner 2…….?


The original ‘Blade Runner’ directed by Ridley Scott set the bench mark for visuals for sci fi films for decades afterwards but Ryan Gosling, who stars in the sequel, has let the cat out of the bag about Harrison Ford’s involvement in the film. So with the film having finished shooting we thought we’d have a look about what we know about the film so far …

  • Ridley Scott declined to direct due to clashing schedules with ‘Alien Covenant’
  • Director of Photography is Roger Deakins, a highly respected cinematographer with 13 Oscar nominations for films such as Skyfall, The Shawshank Redemption & Fargo
  • He has worked with the director Dennis Villeneuve on Prisoners and Sicario for which he was nominated for an Oscar also
  • Director Denis Villeneuve and Harrison Ford have described the script as one of the best they’ve ever read
  • This is the first script in over 50 years that Ridley Scott will be credited for the story.
  • The film shot for several months before needing Harrison Ford for any scenes which suggests he may only be a supporting character in the film. It’s rumoured that he will only appear in the 3rd act of the film.
  • It seems that the question as to whether Harrison Ford’s Dekkard character is human or replicant will NOT be answered according to director Denis Villeneuve.
  • Ryan Gosling will play the lead but also appearing will be Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy). Jared Leto and British actor Lennie James
  • The film is set for a release on October 6th 2017.
  • The film shot in studios in Hungary
  • The budget is rumoured to be in excess of $150m
  • The films official title is Blade Runner 2049
